Mike Markham asked:
One of the more important pieces of information and expense of a home, condo, etc. is the HOA or maintenance fee. As you know, this expense is sometimes more than taxes and insurance combined.

We've been the lessor of our second investment home for 8 years to the same couple. They have never missed a monthly payment and their lease payment more than covers expenses. We…

Victory Property Management answered:
Typically a bedroom is considered a Master Bedroom if it has it's own private bathroom. A shared bathroom with another bedroom would not make it a master. For resale value, typically the Master Bedroom does better if it is on the main level.

In addition, as it stands right now, the first floor bathroom would be considered as a full (tub, toilet, sink). Adding a walk-in shower may add market appeal but will not add much value.

Hello, as someone with small children in the public school system, I can tell you that there are a lot of areas that fit your needs. However, in addition to the great advice from the other realtors below, there is one place no one has mentioned - Fort Mill, SC. This gem of a town was recently voted #7 best small city in the US to raise a family by Parents Magazine. I sell in both NC and SC and I call this area South Charlotte South as it is only minutes from the restaurants, shopping, and jobs in NC. I cross the state line 2x to get to my home in Union County, NC. It's truly a place where most non-locals don't know where to look and then kick themselves for not considering if they don't have a realtor that helps them understand the benefits. If you have any further questions or want some inside information, please email me or call me: or 704-759-6168 ... more

Hi Ginger,

In the last 180 days , 9 single family homes closed in our MLS in the shannamara community. 3 out of 9 were foreclosures and one of those 3 was on Bethesda. The 3 foreclosures went around 82-83$ per sqft . The avg price per sqft was $103 total for all 9 solds but others did sell for much higher per sqft in this community . The average days on market was around 60 days. In my opinion this area is very solid and is holding its value well, i do not see a down trend. The foreclosures will pass and the avg will rise some. The subject property looks like is priced around 110sqft . If you would like more detailed information on the subject property or would like a more detailed analysis of true comparables for the subject property, feel free to contact me anytime. Thanks Ryan 704/608.4767 C/T or ... more

Not too many houses in Matthews are going to have an acre of yard, you will need to go to the Union county side of Matthews for that. Mecklenburg county side of Matthews is more of large neighborhoods with small houses/small lots to fit as many as possible in an area! ... more

Matthews Elementary, hands down. Wonderful, loving, kind EC, classroom, Speech and OT/PT teachers. Extraordinarily compassionate people who will cherish your son.

As I'm sure you know, it's important to always be a well-informed advocate for your child, but I think your son would be happy and feel at home in this neighborhood school. Best of luck to you! ... more

Hi Nodoff,

In my experience ( depends on size/price of home ).

1. Home Inspections
$350-500 avg

2. Pest ( termite report )
$75- 100 avg

3. Appraisal
$ 375 - 500 avg

PLEASE NOTE - Don't try to save yourself 50-100 bucks and go with the cheapest company, like in everything else you pay for what you get, especially on one of the biggest investments you can make. Good home inspectors are worth their weight in GOLD !!

Let me know if you need a few local A+ referrals. Please provide answer feedback.
